Per serving


Stovetop, Pot (small), Frying pan, Knife


Pasta (spaghetti)

Step 1

In a pot of salted, boiling water, add the spaghetti & cook according to the package directions, about 6-9 min.


Step 2

Wash & cut the eggplant into thick slices, lengthwise. Season with salt & pepper on both sides.


Step 3

In a deep dish, add the egg, salt & pepper. Whisk with a fork.

Flour (all-purpose)

Step 4

In a second plate add the flour. Coat the eggplant slices in the flour, then in the beaten egg.

Bread crumbs (plain)
Parmesan (grated)

Step 5

In a third plate, combine the breadcrumbs with 1 tbsp of parmesan per serving. We also like to mix in our favorite seasonings like Italian seasoning & garlic powder. Coat the eggplant slices with the seasoned breadcrumbs. For a thicker crust, coat them a second time in the beaten egg mixture, then in the breadcrumbs.

Marinara sauce

Step 6

Drain the pasta & return to the pot. Add the marinara sauce & mix well to coat. Keep the saucy pasta warm until serving.

Vegetable oil

Step 7

Heat about 1/2 a cup of a vegetable oil in a medium pan. Carefully test the oil with a small splash of breadcrumbs. When the oil starts to sizzle, add the eggplant.

Step 8

Fry the eggplant over medium heat until golden brown, about 3-5 min per side.

Step 9

Once golden, transfer the eggplant to a paper towel-lined plate. Season again to taste.

Step 10

Slice the eggplant.

Parmesan (grated)

Step 11

Serve the eggplant over the spaghetti & top with parmesan. Garnish with a few basil leaves if you have & enjoy!
